Offering simple 2-star perks on the east side of town, the Knights Inn along Read Boulevard is a low-cost way to make your mark in The Big Easy. Offering free continental breakfast, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a variety of eateries along the nearby Chef Highway, you’ll be glad you went the simple route. The quiet side of town is also popular for those arriving from the nearby New Orleans Lakefront Airport, not to mention nature-lovers ready to explore the Bayou Sauvage National Park. About an hour from the French Quarter via public transportation and half the time with your own vehicle, getting a private ride might just be worth it, especially if you want to see as much as possible in a short amount of time.
Take advantage of nearby attractions, starting with what’s at Joe W. Brown Park, located south along Read Boulevard and offering expansive greenery, hidden fishing spots, and an indoor community pool especially popular in the summer. Head to Julie’s Kitchen afterward, located within the park and known to offer comfort food until closing time, or drive down Chef Highway until you reach a scent you like. Those looking to adventure into the heart of NOLA’s historic French Quarter should take time to look around, whether it’s to absorb the eclectic art of Lafayette Square or the flowers of the Long Due House & Gardens.
